Origins of surname
This name was given to someone who lived by a copse, wood, or thicket, from the old English sceaga for small wood. It could also apply to someone living in one of numerous places called Shaw, with the same derivation.
The name first appears in Jersey in 1731, but it was not for nearly 100 years after that a family became established, and there appear to have been several families at the same time.
